    They made a news story out of a CNN Web poll?!?!?

    Really, the comments on Slashdot's Web poll are applicable to virtually any Web poll:

    "This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane."

    Still, it's nice to see what appears to be a sudden onset of sanity among Americans....

    It isn't a news story - it is a press release from an RKBA group that Yahoo picked up.

    My bad. I hate when that happens...some of these sites, you can't tell the difference between a press release and a "real" news story at a glance.

    I've been watching the poll, and while I'd like to think that the press statement is exactly correct, my own interpetation of the numbers would be more along the lines of

    "Of those who hold strong opinions on the subject, anti-awb'ers strongly outnumber pro-awb'ers"

    I think that after the first couple days of the poll it has been mostly the brady gang and us doing the voting.
